The other team lost the game.

Unexciting Reason To Attend: It's Fan Appreciation Weekend. All Syracuse University students will receive free admission to the game, courtesy of Pepsi. SU will recognize the 2012 Letterwinners of Distinction at halftime )
Exciting Reason To Attend: It's Coach P's first game back in the Dome since being fired. What will the reaction be? Will there be boos? Cheers? What if he runs into DOC Gross in the hallway? You want to find out, don't you?
